Affordable Modern Design WIth A Full Stack Developer
Web Designer, Web Developer & Full Stack Developer; do you know the difference in the three? Technically a web designer deals with graphics and creates the visual interface that the Developer scripts and codes into the website and functionality you use today.

Is Our Full Stack Development Right For You?
If you looking to get started, give us a call or send us an email. We can schedule a meeting to go over everything in detail. We believe in working closely with our clients to create more then a great looking website but also a statement. The quality of our work speaks for itself! just look below! If you can also head over to our portfolio page to see more of our designs and creations. Or check out our other services we offer as many if not all compliment each other and we believe in creating individualised personalised service strategies for clients.
We also specialise in WordPress. It’s a great option for many businesses as the platform receives constant updates. We design it with the best in caching, and optimisation; creating a fast loading site.
Our website is built on WordPress, as is 38% of the internet. Most major news outlets and well as over half the top 1000 sites run WP. With its popularity and widespread deployment comes good and bad. Many of our clients have had bad experiences with wordpress. Either slow sites, cookie cutter “WordPress Look” or both. We combine top development and top web hosting in all projects.
With WordPress so heavily used, it has become easy and a standard practice for amature designers to offer low cost flat rate WP websites. (You probably seen the ads; $400 WP Site!!) These are built on dirty cheap, low end shared web hosting. Some as cheap as $1/mo running several sites. They use a $35 template they purchase or already own and just add your logo and text. These end up being slow websites that all look the same!
We understand the code behind WordPress and how it works; We use that to create optimized sites like ours. Our site runs WordPress and loads pages in under a second. We use multiple caching layers and code optimisation. We also rely on the web servers that our sites run on to do as much of the work as they can; as it is more efficient then having WP do it.
Beware Of Too Good To Be True SEO Offers
Watch out for SEO guarantees of #1 on SERPs. Anyone who says they know someone at Google and especially anyone who says they KNOW how Google works. No one can guarantee any SEO results. Google has never told anyone how their algorithm works but only given us web design rules. So how do We SEO professionals build our personal method to help a business optimize for top rankings in the search results? There are a couple different ways. We look at Google?s filed patents, including the initial patent that described how PageRank works. Following Google?s own SEO recommendations from their webmaster guidelines, their blog, and videos Google releases about SEO. Reviewing the results of case studies and experiments conducted by some of the companies that offer SEO tools and tips. Refer to experience with clients we?ve seen achieve top rankings. Most SEO is a scam, Don’t get fooled. Humble, knowledgeable professionals who promise to do there best, sounds good but if they promise the world it’s too good to be true.
Never Get Your Domain Or Hosting From Your Designer
If you have your Web designer or developer get your domain name and/or hosting then they legally own it. If they died, disappeared, were arrested, or got mad at you; your entire online presence would just be gone and unrecoverable. You should open your hosting account and your domain registrant account in your name, and buy hosting and your domain in your name with your card. Your designer can access the hosting to build your site but its continued existence is independent of your developer.
Be the master of your own domain. You or your company should own the domain. Register it yourself. It is ok to ask for hosting or domain registrant suggestions, and to have your designer or developer help you thought the process of buying and setting them up. We actually have a few we suggest and usually have coupons for permidant discounts on hosting plans. We can walk you though the whole 30 minet process of buying a domain and webhosting and setting it up. It’s easy, and it means we cant hold your domain and site hostage.
We recommend Digitaloceans.com for hosting. Starting at $5/mo and can be expanded as needs arise. We can help you open your account and with our referral get you 2/mo free. With Digital Ocean we setup the ultimate hosting platform for your needs. Good web hosting helps with your SEO as fast sites are ranked better by search engines.
We offer specialised server setups (when best for a project). with Digitalocean web hosting, options become affordable and limitless. We also have a great standard and versatile setup. Ubuntu 20.04 LTS server running running our open source control panel and server stack:
- Apache2 with PHP-FPM and NGINX reverse proxy
- Multiple PHP versions (5.6 – 7.4, 7.3 as default for optimal compatibility)
- DNS Server (Bind) or Cloudflare DNS and firewall.
- POP/IMAP/SMTP mail services (Exim4 and Dovecot) with Anti-Spam, Anti-Virus, and Webmail (ClamAV, SpamAssassin, and Roundcube)

*Most clients projects only require DO’s $5/mo to $10/mo plans.
